i just noticed that stock music player rearrange albums only in alphabetical order...would be nice to have them rearranged in chronological order (it's quite a basic feature to me that almost every player almost have)

just giving an update on this one : 2.1.4 player finally rearrange albums by year and not alphabetically, so yay thanks jolla for listening to me :)

now, two things to point out that would be nice to have

1 order albums from oldest to newest (now is from newest to oldest) 2 show the year (maybe near the album name)

after that, sorting will be almost perfect... :)

For me I would like to have the albums in chronological order if I access them via artist. If I directly access albums I'd prefer alphabetical order.

Yes - chronological order within artist is the most important for me.

A really neat feature would be to be able to (manually) link artists if there are several variations of their name in the metadata. All their albums could then appear together.

I'd rather prefer an option where I can select and/or change the sort order.

One problem: the year in ID3 tags is often (usually in my experience) missing or just wrong. Then you have reissues, remasters, ... And it's possible to produce >1 album in a year!

I was using easytag the other day. It defaults year to something - 1980 I think - for some reason. I didn't bother to change it.

instead of closing the question as released you extend your.incompöete initial description and want more ?
